Digital Imaging

Barry Rhome, DMD, PC  uses state of the art Digital Imaging Technology to reduce radiation exposure time by about 90% and provide detailed information that could be undetectable using traditional x-ray techniques. 

Moreover, Dr. Rhome carefully chooses which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.

Traditional dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for traditional  dental radiographs is  minimal. However, Barry Rhome, DMD, PC mainly utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 90% less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information to see cavities better.

Digital X-Rays

Dr. Rhome uses Digital X-rays to offer a more precise view of the tooth. The digital x-ray can be scaled and manipulated on the computer. These images can be stored and later retrieved  to assess healing at a later check up visit. .  Additionally, they can be easily, and securely , transferred via the computer to the patients’ other healthcare providers , if needed.  . Digital x-rays results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you , compared with traditional films.

Cone Beam CT

When a definitive diagnosis cannot be made with computerized digital x-rays, Dr. Rhome will utilize state-of-the-art, small volume cone-beam CT (computed tomography) technology that provides highly accurate, 3-D radiographic images. This allows three-dimensional visualization of teeth, bone, sinuses and surrounding structures with minimal radiation to the patient, enabling a level of anatomical accuracy and patient care not possible with 2-D technologies (regular dental x-rays or even digital x-rays). With the addition of cone-beam CT technology to our office, our practice is committed to providing innovative, high-quality, patient care.

Surgical Microscopes

The introduction of the surgical microscope has revolutionized the field of Endodontic Microsurgery. We have invested in the very best quality surgical microscopes, by Global Industries, that provide unparalleled magnification and illumination for our surgical procedures.

Our success depends on us being able to see the minutest of details — you cannot treat what you cannot see.
